Please Help my claim is still in HD which means pending
(Nevada Unemployment Benefits)
I had my unemployment telephone interview on 11/15/11 with an Adjudicator , and she didn't say I'll receive benefits either way, she just said you'll receieve a letter in the mail before 11/26/11, so does that mean i was denied unemployment?
My job fired me for what they said was a medication error, which did not cause any problems to the patient, and for documentation, they told unemployment it was because of three absences from work, the Adjudicator then called me back and said what the employer told her and I said that was never said during me getting fired, I told her i was sick and it was beyond my control, do I have a chance at unemployment? I live in Nevada a at will state :(
First, all states are at will states. At will employment is a doctrine (an attitude or ideology) and it is recognized by the US.
It's the employment laws, including unemployment, which create exceptions to the ideology of at will.
Most unemployment departments don't tell you what the determination will be verbally and they especially won't say anything if they aren't done investigating.
It's just a guess, but I suspect that after talking to you and finding out that the employer didn't mention poor attendance during the meeting where you were terminated .. prompted the adjudicator to call the employer back and ask for details about the med error.
However, it's when you finally do get that determination .. you'll know which conduct you will have to focus on preparing for.
Whether you're denied or allowed unemployment, I see the possibility of an appeal hearing .. merely because when people get benefits .. employers appeal .. at least when they use a cost control company.
Even if there was no communication from the employer telling us to appeal .. we appealed to save their appeal rights and when the hearing notice arrived on my desk .. I would withdraw the appeal if they didn't want to fight the benefits.
That didn't happen very often.
